On Saturday February 7th in the afternoon my beloved and I went at the invitation of our son in law Ken to celebrate his and Cathy’s first wedding anniversary with Ken’s parents, Margaret and Eric at Betty’s restaurant. It was a lovely sunny day although cold. Cathy had specially booked a table for the occasion for 2.30 pm. My beloved and I came on the bus, so we arrived late, as the bus was 10 minutes late arriving because of the volume of traffic. Cathy was waiting to greet us so we joined Ken, Margaret and Eric. We were even sitting on the same table we had been on at the reception a year before. Cathy had managed to book that table. We began with a glass of champagne each before we had our shared trays of sandwiches, scones and cakes. Everything was delicious. We raised a toast to Cathy and Ken and a member of staff took a photo of us. The scones were very tasty. I enjoyed the scones with jam although the others enjoyed jam and cream. We then had a selection of cakes; my beloved and I shared each different cake by cutting them in half. They too were delicious accompanied by Darjeeling tea. The time flew by with good conversation. It was a special treat to share their anniversary. Cathy and Ken then sent us back in a taxi. Margaret and Eric were dropped off first. Eric was obviously much frailer but he seemed to enjoy spending time with us all.
On our return home we relaxed together only having a small snack later, as we were still well satisfied after our champagne afternoon tea. My beloved and I were so glad we could go to share Cathy and Ken’s special day. I am so fortunate to have such a loving family.
